DIY Easy Fall Wreath

Good morning, fabulous friends! I’m so excited to show you my DIY Easy Fall Wreath. Since I decided to use my Burlap and Lace wreath on my Fall mantel, I needed a new wreath for the front door. I didn’t want to spend much on another wreath, so I used things that I had on hand except for the flowers and crab apples that I bought at Hobby Lobby on sale and with a gift card!

I’m in love! Y’all, this wreath is so easy that anyone can make it. ;) Seriously.

Supplies:

  • 2 yards burlap
  • 17″ wreath form {grapevine, foam etc}
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Upholstery thread and needle
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Flowers, berries etc

First, cut a few strips {2-3″ wide} of burlap to wrap the wreath form. Hot glue the burlap in place. I had this old burlap and jute wreath that I repurposed for my new wreath.

Next, cut strips of burlap for the ruffle. I cut mine 4″ wide. Since my wreath already had a ruffle on the back, I just added another one to the front. My front ruffle used seven burlap strips. You will notice that the back ruffle isn’t as gathered as the front. That is totally fine to replicate and will save you some burlap as well as time gathering it up.

Use a needle and upholstery thread to gather the seven {or however many} strips. Be sure to secure the knot with a dab of hot glue to keep it from pulling through the burlap.

Arrange the ruffled burlap on the wreath. You can adjust the length of the ruffle at this time to make it shorter or longer. Finish the ruffle by knotting the thread and securing the knot with hot glue.

Glue down the burlap ruffle all the way around the wreath.

Cut the sunflowers off the stems and separate the crab apple stem. Then hot glue everything in place. That’s all there is to it. Simple. DIY. Easy Fall Wreath!

Those ruffles make me really happy. :)

I love the combination of earthy burlap with bright seasonal flowers and berries.

This adorable, moss covered fence surrounds our backyard. It made a perfect backdrop for my wreath photoshoot.

In the next week or so, I’ll be posting my Fall front porch. It is coming together so well! You’ll see this wreath again on my front door.


Do you have a wreath on your door to celebrate this season?

I hope you have a marvelous Monday! :)

  7. I love all the burlap! Next year I hope to do a bit with burlap?! I needed a new fall mat for outside my front door. They are not easy to find!! Ive found that coir kind to be too tall and people trip…I wanted a nice one that did its job but was not so tall.. Home Depot had one for $7.99 and I became BOLD in my fall colors! Usually I’m so traditional with a soft wheat color theme but this year this fall mat was not traditional!!!..I had to find dark turquoise, dark orange, mustard yellow to add to a wreath I had! I just used other flowers and ribbon I had to fill in but it’s quite a departure from my usual entry! All I’ve gotten is wows and love its so I guess stepping out of comfort worked this time! Luckily HD and Michaels must have had a thing going as I found flowers to match the mat–my friend hauled it inside for us to match because it would have not worked by guessing!!!
    For Christmas I will use some of your burlap ideas!

  8. Love this!!! After Halloween, I’m planning to make myself one of these for the front door. LOVE love love the ruffles and burlap is one of my fall favs!! Thanks for the inspiration.
